over the little film and what do you think of the demonstrations and revolutions that keep shaking the arab world what is the position of the iraqi government regarding these events is it positive negative or neutral i do stage there. it is positive iraq was one of the first arab states that welcomed the revolution in tunisia probably our official representative was the first one to arrive in tunisia and egypt to congratulate them on the revolution we've got good connections with other protesters movements as well they consider iraq to be an example despite all our drawbacks iraq is pursuing a line of new democracy it's an example of achieving democracy freedom and respecting human dignity we are all aware of our drawbacks however but they are looking at us whether we recognize the people's right to self-determination for fulfilling their political will and making their political choice while being free and preserving their dignity iraq is anything but neutral in this situation but at
the same time iraq is unwilling to interfere with other people's affairs we can set an example that's how we see our role which does not consist in choosing leaders. but do you have the same position regarding the current events in syria at the moment. yes the government has the same position regarding what's going on in syria however the investments in syria different due to the country's geopolitical position in the region and the role it plays for iraq syria is different from libya it's different from yemen with a good relationship and permanent contacts with our brothers in syria showed that we still have time for the reforms that would be really felt by ordinary people and that it is impossible to resolve the issue soley by force. even officially and constantly demanding that iran should stop bombarding the northern neighboring regions of iraq stressing that such sanctions negatively affect the relationship between the two countries. why doesn't iran react to it is iraq's weakness. oh.
no these bombardments are unlawful and very harmful they've been a cause of concern for our previous and current government the people of iran and iraq are close we are friends and allies and actions like that do not serve to improve our relations which is what we keep telling them iran wants the kurd free life party to see sect evictee in the border regions this demand is completely understandable but that's not the way to solve this problem you have witnessed the shootings they are chaotic and pointless we have worked in the mountains and we know that these bombardments will not lead to any result. recently around propose solving the issue through negotiations of the security committees of the two countries and we support that proposal i believe that today's decrease in intensity of bombardments will ultimately lead to their end we let the iranian government know about the position of the iraqi government i often hear that the iraqi government doesn't have any final position on this issue and if that's not true we
do have such a position and it's been stipulated in the relevant treaties and presented to the iranian ambassador more than once the position has been officially presented via diplomatic channels and in the personal meetings of the leaders i personally carried out negotiations on this with the iranian foreign minister such talks of being conducted by other ministries opposition has been published and voiced in a parliamentary address in the mass media that was. my that was your father that quote that mr minister the leaders of political factions are carrying out an goshi sions with the government on the issue of american mountings track to staying in the iraqi armed forces after america pulls most of its troops out how many are there going to be and how long are they going to stain iraq. or yes iraq needs military instructors probably the military instructors won't be from the troops that are being pulled out from iraq probably the training itself will be conducted in iraqi. we must be precise the published data and only says that the government
is willing to start negotiations rather than conclude an agreement on the agreement to pull out the coalition troops before the end of twenty eleven remains unshakable the. does it mean that before the end of this year all the american troops will be pulled out from iraq. or all the troops in departments will be pulled out before the end of twenty eleven without any delay but there is another problem here iraq has purchased tanks airplanes and military boats and this equipment requires thorough preparation and good instructors and that's the case throughout the world let's say tomorrow we buy russian tanks then the instructors must be russian as well we should not mix up two different things and talk about the troops staying there longer until now the number of instructors and other details has not been defined mr zebari i'm sure you are very well acquainted with the report presented by prime minister nouri al maliki to party leaders in parliament of the current
status on iraq's armed forces what does it say how the report gives an assessment of the country's domestic security and it says that our armed forces have reached the level of proficiency and equipment status sufficient for maintaining it but i would like to point out again that we have no aircraft no air shield no defense system our ports in the gulf an ambassador i have no cover from the sea since there is no navy in place and there still remains a need for intelligence services in the view of the threat from al qaeda and terrorism quite honestly we still need to build up our defense capacities we need equipment and armaments as well as qualified instructors who will be able to increase our army's performance to the level where it would become fully operational and self-sustained even letters given this when can we expect the iraqi armed forces to complete building up their defense capacities and take over the task of maintaining domestic security. this is beyond my all thorough. so i'm not
prepared to answer this question but i can say that it will take some time no doubt . there is an opinion that the decision to employ u.s. forces personnel to train the iraqi army was made by iraq's political leaders under direct pressure from the usa what can you say about that there's a lot of i hired out no there was no pressure the americans helped us lay the foundation and start building our new army that's one sure thing they keep helping us and monitoring the progress they give advice on what strategic armaments we can buy from them we have a need for them and they have their own interests in iraq and they're protecting their interests but not by way of putting pressure or telling us to do this or that there is nothing of this card they say that they are ready to stay only if iraq asks them to but we're not asking them our government hasn't given such a request as for the military instructors this issue will be discussed by the government and the country's leaders iraq has a need for them. that they. have been made by iraq regarding terminating the
cause of iraq's international isolation and what stands in the way of complete removal of sanctions. and we're now beyond all the decisions about iraq's isolation by the international community disarmament w m d's oil in exchange for food and other contracts that have expired but the issue of iraqi assets has been solved dozens of agreements have been canceled that are not relevant anymore but a number of decisions primarily concerning kuwait are still effective this is a very sensitive issue to say nothing about port mobarak there are also other decisions that we should comply with resolution eight three three on the iraqi weight boundary demarcation saddam's regime took this decision while our constitutional power must adopt this resolution. as part of our humanitarian record we must solve the issue of prisoners and those missing the issue of kuwait property should be resolved but we also. have casualties and separated families
a lot was stolen from our country in two thousand and three but we must solve these problems and we have started this work five percent of our oil revenues go to kuwait as compensation and that will continue. given. the what's your assessment of the relations between baghdad and moscow is there a program to develop corporation relationship annoyance. thank god our relations are developing well and we're making significant progress i think that russian foreign minister lavrov his visit to baghdad is a good confirmation of this our relations in political economic trade construction and military areas have become quite advanced they are very well thought through plans of russian iraqi military cooperation aiming at increasing combat readiness of the iraqi armed forces which for many years have used russian military equipment and armaments there is also a plan for russian oil companies to participate in
a number of projects to develop the iraqi oil industry including some investment projects i think that we've proved that we make no preferences and do not obstruct russia's interests on iraq's markets as russian business circles might have thought earlier despite the fact that the u.s. and great britain are also active in iraq market and pursue their interest i'm sure that fair competition will allow russian oil companies to take their fair share in iraq's oil market. you have retained your position as foreign minister and prime minister is cabinet for a second term in office what is your opinion of the premier and the government's work as primarily a citizen of iraq and secondly the minister of foreign affairs. that you bore her that i love a man learns elma leakey never expected to become prime minister you never thought about the position i for my part never thought i would become foreign minister i was just doing state service but a man learns i'm sure elmer leakey has learnt. a lot about resolving the country's
problems and countering threats to iraq during his first term he and i work side by side for twenty four hours a day following and managing our affairs we would not have achieved anything if we work separately and the country needs every one of us to work the country needs a stronger political leadership stronger parties and parliament more unity with elma leakey despite being the extraordinary and experienced man he is would not have achieved anything if he had worked on his own you cannot clap with one hand but this is my opinion with we have learned a lot and we still have a lot to learn we have to define the criteria of national unity and national interests and rule the country based on these criteria and the will of the people that with them but the people will decide who runs the country vajra lections no one can rule forever the people will change and replace their rulers that is what democracy demands in all countries of the world like it was here thank you very much minister that.
